First trailer of Ni no Kuni: Shiroki Seihai no Joou rocks

Last week we mentioned that the Level 5/Studio Ghibli videogame, Ni no Kuni: The Another World was going to be ported over to the PS3. This was pretty exciting, as while the DS does a fine job of showing off the animation from the House that Tortoro built, the PS3 would have an even better chance of replicating the actual artwork itself.

And boy does it do that. Coming to Japan sometime in 2011, Ni no Kuni: Shiroki Seihai no Joou is the PS3 version of the game and will better replicate animation of Studio Ghibli as well as offer a different experience than the DS game. Above is the first trailer for the game, and it goes about showing how much the game matches the art. It’s pretty cool, and one of the best uses of cel-shading that I have seen. Even better, it shows clearly what the battle system will be like, which seems to be a type of monster collecting and fighting. Honestly, I’m pretty stoked by the trailer, and I hope that Level 5 is able to port it outside of Japan, and considering their latest attempts to enter new markets, this might happen.
